Debate on government participation in foreign worker program review

S. Simpson: The federal government has said that they'll be reviewing the temporary foreign worker program, but we've heard nothing about the status of that review. We know that B.C. needs to have a strong voice at that table for the review. We need to protect the interests of both B.C. workers and the foreign workers who are here in British Columbia.

The minister said on February 18 that he was going to talk to Ottawa, yet we've heard nothing about those conversations or B.C.'s position. Will the minister release details of B.C.'s position, what he said to Ottawa and who he's consulted in B.C. to develop our position?
